WND Promotes Dubious Story
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Feb. 18 WorldNetDaily article repeated the claim reported by CBN News that "Five Muslim soldiers were arrested for allegedly trying to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson in South Carolina."

While WND noted an Army official stating that "there is no credible information to support the allegations," it has not yet noted other denials by military officials, as highlighted by Media Matters: form another Army spokesman and from Fort Jackson itself. Further, Fox News has since reported that "it doesn't appear there was ever any actual danger to the food supply at Fort Jackson, but there was talk about such a threat, and that's what the Criminal Investigation Division in the Army is looking into."
